Here is another List Ranking the top 19 and considering dozens more LINK
By the way here is what they said at TIAGO:
| 10. Tiago Splitter |
Splitter didn't have the best NBA Finals debut, but his improvement in 2012-13 was a big part of the Spurs getting there. Now 28, the Brazilian has put together two solid seasons for San Antonio. He won't be a featured scorer anywhere in all likelihood, but he can score more than his per-games indicate: he's at 15.5 points per 36 minutes for his career. His defensive rebounding numbers are strong, and he's not a turnover or foul machine at this point. And he's really efficient with a True Shooting percentage above .600. He's also the second-best big man defender among free agents (behind Howard -- West, who is much smaller, may beat him, too) and he's learned how to defend the San Antonio way, which is pretty much the best way.
Go Spurs Go!
“I asked them if it wasn't too much trouble, if I wasn't being too pushy, if they could execute what we were trying to do. And if it didn't make them too angry, if they also wanted to play some defense on the other end, that would be great.”
